KinderArt® Lesson/Activity

HANDY WREATHS

Grade: K-3
Age: 4-9

Submitted by: Nicki, a teacher at Sacred Heart Catholic School.

What You Need:

  • green and red construction paper
  • pencil
  • child-safe scissors
  • glue
  • 1 large paper plate per child

What You Do:

  1. This plan usually should be used over a couple of days rather than in one sitting, for small children.
  2. Using a pencil and green construction paper, the children trace their hands as many times as they can fit on the paper. Each child will use 2-3 pieces of paper for this.
  3. Once the hands are traced, cut them out. (Allowing the children to do this on their own) and set them aside.
  4. Take the paper plate and fold it in half.
  5. Cut the inner circle out.
  6. The plate should look like a Lifesaver®.
  7. The hands are then glued on the outer part of the plate to form a wreath.
  8. The red construction paper is for making a bow - or you could dress up the wreath with real bows used for gift wrapping.
  9. I also cut little red circles or have the more able children cut them themselves, to use as holly for decorating the wreath.
  10. Another cute idea is to cut a rectangle from the red paper. The rectangle acts as a candle that can be glued to the center of the wreath.
  11. Take or ask for a picture of the child, and cut it into a shape that could act as the flame on the candle.
